Bagels, Bagels, Bagels

I was talking to a friend about food yesterday. (Is that surprising? Yeah, I didn’t think so…) In this conversation, I commented that I love to make bagels in many different flavors and continued on about something else, while he was interrupting me with “Wait! What? You make bagels? Like you toast them and put cream cheese on them, not like actually make bagels, boiling and all that”…. I laughed, and replied that of course I mean I mix the dough, shape it, boil it, bake it… how silly to assume I meant anything else, right? 😉

So, making bagels has been on my mind for quite awhile now, but always gets set aside. It is time to stop putting that task aside. I have asked my friends what their favorite bagel flavors are and I received several responses. “Blueberry” “Cheese” “Onion” “Garlic” “Dried Cherries with Honey” (let me add my YUM! to that request!!! Sounds great!) “Pumpkin Spice” “Sun Dried Tomato with Italian Spices”

Well, that’s a lot of flavors! And I am not ambitious enough to try to do them all in one bagel making session, but I will make bagels this weekend! (Please, would someone remind me to pick up some more flour, cheese, onion, garlic and I guess some blueberries…) I will mix, shape, boil and bake… and then I will wrap and freeze for easy breakfasts and snacks. And yes, I will share! Of course I will share. It’s what I do. 🙂

You can find my recipe HERE! Happy boiling. 🙂

    Ooo, if you have a bagel recipe that works, could you share it with me and I’ll try making some gluten free ones. I miss bagels!

  2. I will share my recipe this weekend. It’s actually 2 recipes: a Hot Roll Mix recipe and the Bagel recipe that uses the Hot Roll Mix… Some day I’ll try a different recipe, but this one works, so I’m sticking with it for now. lol
